The SDGOP spin blog is off script again… and so is Americans for Prosperity. Pat Powers reports that the plutocrats at AFP are sending out postcards cheering certain conservative legislators for approving House Bill 1137, which cuts the state sales tax from 4.5% to 4.2% for four years, starting this July 1. The AFP cards thank Sioux Falls radicals Senator Brent Hoffman (R-9) and Representatives Bethany Soye (R-9) and John Sjaarda (R-2) for voting for “THE LARGEST TAX CUT IN SOUTH DAKOTA HISTORY!”
Hey, Pat and plutocrats, weren’t you paying attention to America’s favorite Governor, Kristi Noem? When she signed HB 1137, she said it’s not a “tax cut” but a mere “tax holiday“. Just days before that signing, she said anyone who calls HB 1137 a “tax cut” is “lying“.
Thus, Governor Kristi Noem must think the plutocrats she courts for campaign cash and the SDGOP spin blog she sponsors with that cash are all liars.
